Owning the Rocket R Nine One

Rocket prefers to be a company of firsts, proving that philosophy yet again with the R Nine One, a pressure profiling dual boiler machine with a saturated group. Based on market feedback and an examination of competing machines, they took elements from their commercial products to bring to bear in the home market. The R Nine One makes use of a 1.9 l saturated group assembly for brewing and a massive 3.6 l boiler for steaming. Echoing the R 60V, the R Nine One also brings back pressure profiling, this time achieved via a magnetic pump and potentiometer.

The new brewing features also come with more modern controls. The machine is equipped with a vivid touch screen display for controlling and programming the its various functions; conversely, brew and steam pressure are still measured in analog via a set of massive gauges located beneath the screen. With more brains behind touch screen, the machine can be programmed with 5 unique pressure profiles, maintenance alerts, and automatic on/off times for every day of the week. Aesthetically, the R Nine One’s Rocket DNA is on full display with the iconic “R” present in several locations alongside the unique Appartamento style feet and raised “ROCKET” letters on the back panel.

Pressure Profiling

Pressure Profiling

The R Nine One features both manual and programmable pressure profiling functionality. The variable water pressure is achieved by a magnetic pump which is controlled by a potentiometer in the brew paddle. Up to 5 pressure profiles can be programmed and saved.

Gicar Touch Display

Gicar Touch Display

In a first for Rocket, controlling the R Nine One is handled by a Gicar touch display. The screen features vivid colors and allows you to intuitively program the various functions the machine can perform.

Saturated Group

Saturated Group

The group assembly is connected directly to the brew boiler to ensure maximum temperature stability; the water intake tube that connects the boiler to the group is completely surrounded by water from the brew boiler.

Plumbed and Reservoir Operation

Plumbed and Reservoir Operation

Depending on your preferences, the R Nine One can operate with both a water reservoir and a water line. Plumbing the machine eliminates the need to refill and allows for the use of inline water filtration options.
